Writing Desk

I’m back at my writing desk after a 2-week hiatus, organizing my thoughts, looking for a way “in” to this chapter. The last substantive chapter to draft. Then write the Conclusion. Then re-write the whole thing at least twice. 

It’s do or die time here. The only option is to finish. This year.


This past Saturday felt like the first real Saturday I’ve had since the kids were born. We cleaned the house, went grocery shopping, cooked, ate, played, and in the mid-afternoon I sat down on the couch with a cup of herbal tea and a new knitting project. And I felt relaxed. It felt amazing. The kids were playing well together, Gimli was puttering in the kitchen, and I had time to sit and knit. A part of myself that has been dormant for six years started to come alive again. 

I can feel it in the tendrils of thoughts about new knitting projects I’d like to try, the new energy I feel while tackling housework. I don’t know where this new life-force came from, or what precisely has shifted either internally or externally (or both), but it’s fantastic.

    I’m glad you found that space for that part of you to come alive again. May it continue until knitting projects are done. Or, spill over into writing time too 🙂

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog
    and was wondering what all is required to get
    set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    A PFS, personal financial specialist, and a credit score will not only help
    budget for the mortgage advice wedding/honeymoon costs, it will be important to add a line
    item for saving to the budget.
